Statement of Faculty Senate Action:

 

FWDC 10:                     Proposal to Revise the Professional Development Leave Policy

                                    (Revision of SD4506S; Faculty Handbook 4.1.4)

 

 

Effective Date:  Immediately

 

Add:     to Faculty Handbook Section 4.1.4 Professional Development Leave

 

            under 4.1.4.3:

 

            NOTE:  Members of the Faculty Senate who are selected for Professional Development Leave shall resign from the Faculty Senate.  

 

 

Rationale:

The 2006-07 Faculty Senate asked FWDC to clarify eligibility for service on the Faculty Senate while on Professional Development Leave.  It is essential that Senators attend meetings and that colleagues have normal access to them.  It is also unrealistic to expect faculty to fulfill Senate responsibilities while on Professional Development Leave.
